Daily League Strategy: Introduction

The Braves' lefty is pitching well, and his matchup with the Padres cements his spot in Paul's suggested lineup.

With DraftKings’ acquisition of DraftStreet, I will now be using that site’s dollar values to select my players of the day.

The Nationals face a rookie pitcher at Coors Field, so Paul has two of them in his recommended lineup.

The $400,000 Midsummer Classic takes place on Tuesday over at DraftKings.com. With DK’s acquisition of DraftStreet, I will now be using that site to select my players of the day.

The Phillies' second baseman hasn't hit well since the beginning of June, but Paul likes his matchup today.

DraftStreet offers one of the best lineup constructions in the industry allowing for three pitchers, two starters and a starter/reliever. Additionally, they don’t overvalue the win as it is worth just two points. The rest of the scoring and roster setup can be viewed here if you aren’t already familiar with it.

C.J. Cron could offer a cheap option at the position, saving you money to splurge elsewhere.

If you listen to Paul today, all of your pitchers and one of your hitters will have the same first name.

The Reds ace is still available at a bargain price after starting the year on the shelf, which makes him a good option to anchor your pitching staff.

Let’s try something a little different, wherein I offer up my top three pitchers and top five hitters to invest in on Wednesday.

The Orioles righty has struggled this year, so Paul loads up on Blue Jays set to square off with Jimenez today.

PITCHING
Homer Bailey is on a bit of a run right now with four straight quality starts yielding a 3.00 ERA and a 1.15 WHIP in 27 innings of work with a 3.4 K:BB ratio. His composite 4.60 ERA still keeps his price depressed at $14,445, though. I like him again today despite a relatively scary matchup against the Brewers. Bartolo Colon ($15,778) isn’t much more expensive, and he’s today’s contestant on “Who Gets to Destroy the Padres?” His 4.31 ERA is still inflated by three bad starts, but he’s almost outrun them. He has a sparkling 1.61 ERA over his last four, going into the eighth in three of them.

Mike Napoli has hit well coming off the DL, and Paul is buying him at a bargain price.

PITCHING
There are some big arms available for Tuesday, including three north of $20,000. Adam Wainwright bounced back from a rough outing against San Francisco, but at $24,010, he’s too expensive to go with over the other big arms several thousand dollars cheaper. No one is hotter than Madison Bumgarner ($21,314), who has a 1.91 ERA, 0.77 WHIP, and 53-to-3 K:BB ratio in 47 innings over his last eight starts. I’d definitely use him over Waino with nearly $3,000 dollars in savings. Corey Kluber ($20,448) is the other $20,000 arm heading into KC, and while I have no issues using him, I’d prefer to jump down a level to the three guys in the $17,000 range.

Josh Donalson has pummeled lefties this year, so Paul recommends anchoring your lineup with the A's third baseman today.

PITCHING
I should’ve gone with my gut and taken Anibal Sanchez, as he did the seemingly impossible with a dominant outing against the white-hot Blue Jays. Friday brings a richer slate of arms with some of the game’s best toeing the rubber. Yu Darvish ($25,774), Johnny Cueto ($22,769), and Julio Teheran ($21,851) could all be yours, but they won’t come cheaply, so you’ll definitely be bargain hunting elsewhere if you want to roster one of them (let alone somehow finagling a pair of them into your lineup).
